You're signing up to walk on Saturday, February 25th at 11:00AM from the Schuylkill Center towards St Joe's

This segment is estimated to take roughly 9 – 10 miles and take 5 to 6 hours. Your mileage may vary depending on choices made by your group, and there will be options to walk a partial segment & depart / get picked up along the way if necessary.

This segment is not capped to a small group and may grow into a parade if enough people join. Please feel free to invite all of your friends – just have them register separately. 

Using public transportation to access departure and end locations is highly recommended.

This day includes a coffee reception at the Schuykill Center exhibit Walking the Edge. Meet us at 10am and invite your friends and family to join us before we head out! Shuttles will be organized to meet us at the nearest public transportation and bring us to the Schuylkill Center.

This segment also concludes with a happy hour/dinner at Landmark Americana. For those looking to join us, JJ will be posting an ETA via twitter @walkaroundphila when the group is about an hour out.

Once registered, you will receive some additional resources including a packing list & maps.
